Open Movement from Axivity

The wearables link to Open Movement; a software platform for the data captured by the Axivity inertial sensors. The data is in a “truly open format”. There is an open source analysis software which uses validated algorithms for physical activity, wear time and energy expenditure &tc…

I can’t find any information about the hardware license for Axivity.

The source code for the firmware and software is available under a BSD 2-clause license (source text), and the hardware (PCB designs, layouts and schematics), enclosure designs and documentation are available under a Creative Commons 3.0 BY Attribution License (source text).
